    This is the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle themed soda box display at some grocery store somewhere. You know, sometimes I wish I'd pursued a career in soda box displays. People would travel from all over the state to see my latest creations, just like in Charlotte's Web. "That'... / Continue →

    In news that shouldn't surprise anybody who has an OREO gut but not a drug problem, scientists at Connecticut College have determined high fat and sugar foods like OREOs stimulate the brain in the same way drugs do -- deliciously. Well, at least in rats. And if you don't thin... / Continue →

    Bad news -- we're out of strawberries and whipped cream. In news I refuse to believe, a recent study from the University of Alabama at Birmingham (go Dragons!) suggests that the average sex act only burns 21-calories. Of course, the average sex act in Alabama is 30-seconds of... / Continue →

    The Black Bear Casino Resort in Minnesota recently broke the world record for largest burger with this 2,014-pound, 10-foot round bacon cheeseburger. My God what I'd give to jump in that thing and swim around in it like Scrooge McDuck in his money. Obviously, it is NOT a chee... / Continue →

    This is a hamburger made from 100% ground bacon. If you think about it, it's actually more of a hamburger than a regular burger because it's actually made from pig. Not unlike pork-chop sandwiches (links to G.I. Joe PSA, NSFW for language). My God, did that smell good. South... / Continue →

    This is the 'Streetwise' Cheese Top Burger from KFC in the Philippines. It has a slice of melted cheese on the top of the bun, making it the LEAST 'streetwise' burger I've ever seen. Jesus, the only streetdumber sandwich would be one with ALL the condiments on the outside. No... / Continue →

    Why it took so long for somebody to finally combine cupcakes and sausages is beyond me, but I suspect it has something to do with a lot of people calling themselves foodies but not really being foodies. People always like to lie about themselves to sound more interesting. Me?... / Continue →

    The world's largest McDonald's restaurant is being for the London Olympics this summer, with a seating capacity of over 1,500. No word if McDonald's thought 'build the largest restaurant' was going to be a medal event this year. With 1,500 seats and spanning about half the le... / Continue →

    Because people are living too long and the queue at the pearly gates is too short, Pizza Hut has introduced a new pizza crust stuffed with hotdogs. Unfortunately, it's currently only available at Pizza Huts in the UK, probably in a bid to plump up Europeans to US proportions. ... / Continue →

    These are some shot of European fast-food chain Quick's black-bunned Darth Vader burger. As you can see, it doesn't look like complete shit, unlike the garbo Burger King always serves. You show me someone at BK who can assemble a burger that looks even REMOTELY like what it's... / Continue →

    Damn, just look at those buns. And I'm not normally into guys with grey hair! America -- in one word: excessive. In two: excessive eaters. Which is why it should come as no surprise that the world's largest hamburger was created over the holiday weekend at the Alameda Count... / Continue →

    Chocolate: it tastes good but makes you fat. I'm actually in the process of weening myself off a four-Snickers-a-day habit but it's not going so hot (read: yesterday I had six and an Almond Joy). Enter the printer that can build things in 3-D chocolate by building them up lay... / Continue →
